    Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said that more than 900,000 refugees have been registered in Germany since the beginning of 2015.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — More than 900,000 refugees have been registered in Germany since the beginning of 2015, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said Friday.

    Herrmann made the statement on the sidelines of the Germany's Christian Union meeting, citing the country's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, Die Welt newspaper said.

    Berlin has not confirmed this information yet and keeps to its previous projections, according to which a total of 800,000 asylum claims are expected to be registered in Germany by the end of the year.

    Europe has been struggling with a major migrant crisis as hundreds of thousands of refugees flee war-torn regions of the Middle East and North Africa.
